Our College of Science Ambassadors are a group of University of Utah students who are passionate about science and their education. Ambassadors are leaders in our college and help with a wide variety of events, the recruitment of new students, and keeping current students engaged and excited about science.
We host events for all College of Science students throughout the year. Catch us at a Taco Game Night, Dogs & Donuts, or an Involvement Fair to connect with other scientists and find your community on campus!
We facilitate events on campus for high school students from all over the Salt Lake Valley. We’ve had the pleasure of hosting the PATHS Program, several local Boys & Girls Clubs, and other school groups over the years.
Starting in 2022, we mentor first year students in our Science Themed Communities on campus. We provide support and resources to help make the transition to the U as smooth as possible and set our first year students up for success!
One of our favorite opportunities is getting to go out to local elementary and middle schools to do activities or experiments with younger students. We’ve had a blast at STEM and STEAM Days as well as career exploration fairs.
